Copy of She's Gotta Have It

 
 

You damn right, I do!  2018 is the year I stop playing small, and truly go after everything I desire – success, joy, and $$$.  Writing is also on that list.  When I first started a blog, waaaaaay back in the day (2008), I was young, going through some shit and most importantly, I was writing from an honest and raw place. And to be quite frank with y'all,  I kinda-really miss that. The last couple of years blogging has been a little difficult for me. Somewhere down the road, I lost my authenticity. What started as a diary style blog, into a full on fashion blog. I began to write about shit I didn't care about.  I could tell my readers didn't give much of a fuck either. My engagement drastically plummeted. Even my sister, Ade, who was my number one supported stopped reading my blog.  Now, don't get me wrong – I love love love fashion, BUT I want to do things a little different around here. I'm getting back to what my true passions are, and why I originally sought out to blog in the first place – to connect, inspire. and be authentic

So, here's to less talking and more doing. 

...And while we're at it, here are a few of my goals for 2018:
